A phone log provided to WPTV by Jones’ employer, the Delray Beach Housing Authority, shows Jones made repeated calls for assistance starting with a call at 1:44 a.m. Oct. 18 to Florida Highway Patrol that lasted four minutes.

The phone log, first reported by our news partners at The Palm Beach Post,  shows that he made six subsequent calls to roadside assistance, the first at 2:09 a.m. lasted 14 minutes.  The last call started at 3:10 a.m. and lasted for 53 minutes.

According to police accounts, Palm Beach Gardens police officer Nouman Raja shot and killed Jones at 3:15 a.m., just minutes after he made his last call.

If the line was recorded, it could have captured valuable audio of the confrontation that ended with Jones being shot and killed.

According to police reports, no other recordings of the confrontation exist.

The CEO at the Delray Beach Housing Authority told WPTV’s Brian Entin that much to her surprise none of the law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation have requested the phone records and only media outlets have requested the information under the state open records law.
